Tax Lawyer NQ-2PQE – US Law Firm with Expanding London Office

Reference: AJ9236EG
Job type: Permanent
Location: UK - London
Practice areas:
Edwards Gibson is instructed to find this leading US law firm a junior tax lawyer to join it’s expanding London office. With a growing presence in London, and having recently made a number of successful and high-profile hires, this firm plans to continue its expansion of the office. Due to this recent growth, the firm now has an abundance of tax work and therefore finds itself in need of additional tax support at the associate level.

An additional associate is needed to advise on a range of transactional, structuring, and advisory work specifically in relation to corporate, private equity, funds and real estate. The firm has a stellar reputation in the real estate sector in the US, and the firm is now looking to mirror this in its London office. As such, a significant amount of the corporate and funds transactions that the firm handles have a real estate underlie, and experience in this area would therefore be advantageous.

The ideal candidate will be up to 2 years’ PQE with experience gained within a well-regarded corporate tax practice at a City law firm, and excellent academics and training are, of course, a must.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join an expanding law firm with a thriving tax practice. The team is relatively small, so as an associate you will form a key part of the team and be able to undertake interesting work and gain responsibility and autonomy, rather than being a cog in a wheel.

The firm has a genuinely friendly culture, with a fun and relaxed atmosphere (unlike the kind of culture typically associated with US law firms), and in addition, the firm offers a very competitive salary.

Apply on line or contact ALICE JENKINS at alice.jenkins@edwardsgibson.com or +44 207 153 4903 to find out more about this or similar opportunities.
